Whether you’re holding a Friendsgiving or attending one, or maybe your Mom is telling you to grow up and cook something for Thanksgiving this year, here are many options to choose from. I compiled some of my favorite Fall recipes on Pinterest for your Friendsgiving and/or Thanksgiving needs. Vegetarian, healthy, non-turkey options, paired with some table-setting ideas that you can steal to make the day feel special and fulfilling. Oh, don’t worry – I didn’t forget cocktails, because sometimes you need a stiff drink at the dinner table when somebody breaks the rules and brings up “Politics”.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Be thankful and grateful for everything you have, stay present, and spread love to your people.
These biscuits from Baker by Nature seem simple enough to make and still embodying that “comfort food” feel.
Not so vegetarian, but I had to have some bacon in the mix here. Easy, tasty, and well… BACON.
Butternut squash is all the rage right now, this recipe seems like it will satisfy the vegans + non-vegans at the table.
This is actually a very unique recipe that I found on Brit + Co, I couldn’t resist not sharing. I might have to make this one myself.
I don’t know about you guys, but I don’t have a big oven to cook a whole turkey in, so I wanted to share a juicy chicken recipe for those who are just like me and opting-out of a turkey this year. This recipe from Half Baked Harvest with goat cheese baked underneath the chicken skin seems mouth-watering.
I’m biased because Bread Pudding is my favorite dessert. Leaving this right here so I can cook it myself 🙂
Went away from your average pumpkin pie and instead wanted to share this Pumpkin Pie Cheesecake dip because.. YUM. Perfect for pre-dinner sweet-tooth appetizers.
This is my cocktail that I made 2 years ago and still gets so much love. A cocktail easy-enough for any person to make, and will surprise all your guests.
Not many people hate Moscow Mules, these cranberry-lime Moscow Mules are sure to fit the bill.
Don’t be a degenerate, decorate your table this year with these easy and extremely cheap DIY table-setting decor.
You can find Yarn at a dollar store, get a pretty color and braid them for use as your napkin ring-holders.
Go to the grocery store and get one flower/plant bouquet. Pull it all apart and take small pieces and attach to your napkin-rings!
If you don’t have a paintbrush, opt for a sharpie marker and decorate a pumpkin with your dinner menu for the guests.
